The 2015 Holden Cruze has been caught without any camouflage in Shanghai, China ahead of its official debut later this year.
Wearing GM’s Chevrolet badge as it is sold overseas, the car looks slightly more chiselled than the current Cruze, with a front end that looks quite similar to the new Kia Cerato sedan, especially the darkened headlights. The next-generation Cruze also appears to get LED daytime running lights which sits above its front fog lights.
At the back, the taillights have been elongated to give the car a wider look. Its third brake light has also been moved to the boot lid.
Inside, the car gets a revised dashboard that looks more modern with a large centre display and an abundance of bright chrome.
The Chinese-spec Cruze will be offered with a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder engine developing 83kW (112 bhp) and 146Nm (108 lb-ft) and a 1.4-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder outputting 110kW (148 bhp) and 235Nm (173 lb-ft). A choice of five- and six-speed manuals well be available, depending on engine choice, along with a seven-speed twin-clutch transmission.
